Udo Berger, escritor fracasado y campen de juegos de estrategia, viaja de nuevo al pequeo pueblo de la Costa Brava catalana donde pasaba los veranos de su infancia. Acompaado por su novia, pasa la mayor parte del tiempo con su juego favorito: El Tercer Reich. Una noche conocen a otra pareja de alemanes, Charly y Hanna, con quien planean pasar los siguientes das. Pero cuando Charly desaparece esa misma noche, la apacible vida de Udo cambiar bruscamente.

Escrita en 1989 y encontrada entre sus archivos tras su muerte, El Tercer Reich es puro Bolao detectives, personajes extravagantes, y un descenso a los infiernos. En su lenguaje, en sus formas y en sus temas podemos ver el germen de futuras obras maestras tales como Los detectives salvajes o 2666.

Accompanied by his new girlfriend, they befriend another German couple with whom they spend most of their time. But when one of his friends disappears after a night out with two local sinister characters, Udos serene life will be disrupted as he is pursued by a private detective.

El Tercer Reich is pure Bolaoa detective, extravagant characters, and a descent into madnessand in it we can be seen the seed of future masterpieces such as Los detectives salvajes (The Savage Detectives) or 2666. Thought to have been written in the early 1990s, El Tercer Reich was found among Bolaos papers after his death.
